What type are you?
Some on-topic design-related fun!
Apparently this was Pentagram's "Christmas card" this year (I'm not on their list, I got the link from VSL): a quick video questionaire to determine what "type" you are. Meaning typeface, of course!
The question bit is well executed, but the real fun comes at the end, when you get a short little video history of your font and how it relates to your personality. (You can also browse through the rest of the 16 available font options.)
If you're curious, I got Bifur the first time, but that didn't feel right to me so I changed one of my answers ("Are you traditional or progressive," which I originally misinterpreted as a question of politics rather than temperment), and got Expanded Antique, seen above, which seems more accurate.
Try it yourself! The password is "character".
